Sporting Programs

Whole School Activities

We have a number of whole school activities during the year beginning with our Swimming Carnival and Fun day. Students in Grade 3-6 are able to try out for the school swim team in the morning and the afternoon sees Prep -6 compete in water tabloid activities. A whole school Athletics day is run towards the end of Term 1 or early Term 2. Again Grade 3-6 commence in the morning competing in a range of events such as 100m, 200m sprints, shot put and discus, long jump and triple jump. Grade P-2 participate in a range of fun activities such as Egg and Spoon races, Sack races, Frisbee throws and 50m sprints. It is a competition between houses for the sports day shield and each student receives at least one ribbon in recognition of their efforts. A whole school Fun Run/Walk day takes place generally in Term 2. Older students are encouraged to run the course and from this our school Cross country team is selected.
